Ingredients

Preparation method

1. Pat fish fillets dry with paper towel and dust with seasoned flour, shaking off any excess.

2. Melt half of butter in a large frying pan on medium heat. When starting to sizzle, add fish fillets and cook for 2 minutes each side, until tender and golden. Remove to warm plates.

3. Add remaining butter and lemon juice to pan, increase heat to high and stir for 1 minute, until well combined. Stir through parsley. Serve fish with steamed potatoes and green beans and spoon over sauce.


Tip: this is a classic fish à la meuniere. Take care not to burn the butter when you're making the sauce — cook it just enough so it's golden and tastes nutty.
